Jack and Hugo have never quite grasped the concept of "work". It is virgin territory to men whose lives have thus far been devoted to the pleasures of wining and dining, never lifting a finger or shedding a drop of sweat. For them, having fun is not a pastime but the only really serious business in life.

When the carefree Jack and Hugo appoint a new Managing Director for their wine importing business to save it from bankruptcy, their halcyon days are numbered.

Alan, the young man hired, doesn’t understand the middle-aged pair’s obsession with socializing, and disagrees with every aspect of their business organization -- especially the way they treat their own stock as a personal cellar! The series follows Jack and Hugo’s attempts to resolve the conflict between their new economic position and the desire to maintain the habits and preoccupations of a lifetime.

Starring stage and screen icon Richard Griffiths as Jack Mowbray.
